#272 Light lunch at Meatless District (Da Costa), Amsterdam (NL)

restaurant review #272 – Meatless District is a vegan restaurant in the city center of Amsterdam (the Netherlands). This review is from a restaurant visit in 2019, so before the lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic started.

There are two location of Meatless District, one in the soutside of town, and this one in the Da Costa neighbourhood, on the west side of town.
We were here for lunch on a weekday. As it was a hot Summer day, we sat on the terrace, in front of the restaurant. Unfortunately it’s a very busy road, with busses and cars driving by instantly.

We had the cheeseburger with fries (16,50€), and the bagel with ‘salmon’ (10€). I would prefer to call it smoked tomato (as that seemed to be what it was made of).

We had mixed opinions about the smoked tomato (‘salmon’). I didn’t really fancy it (didn’t really resemble the taste of salmon IMO) my husband thought it was OK. The burger was nice, fries too.
Not very large portions. Ideal for a small lunch.

Service was very friendly!
The interior is very nice. Spacious. Sober but stylish. Although mostly with wood chairs (not so comfy) and also some benches. Some high barstool chairs and tables in the front area.

The restaurant room is accessible. Toilets is with some steep stairs. I did not see an accessible toilet.

All in all: We had a nice lunch. The interior is very nice, although seatings not so comfy. It was not so relaxed sitting outside, as it is along a very busy road.

NOTE: This review is from a visit before the lockdown, so please be aware that the setting, menu, etc may have changed meanwhile.

  1. I love that place. You’re right about the road. It was too cold to sit outside. I was there a little over a year ago with dear friends who live in the Netherlands.
